State officials tour new biotech start-up company that produces 3D-printed face mask frames

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) — Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz joined U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal and UConn President Tom Katsouleas to tour Connecticut Biotech Wednesday afternoon, a new start-up company that is producing 3D-printed face mask frames.

UConn developed the technology to create a custom mask frame that makes regular surgical masks more protective and helps to secure filtration.

The frames use photographs of a customer’s face to measure out a custom fit. Developers say they help masks conform better to your face and that, in turn, provides more protection against COVID-19.

Middletown public schools will get a batch for the start of the school year.
